Ahhh, Valentine's Day. It's the one day of the year we taken girls are pretty much guaranteed to receive oodles of chocolate, flowers, and haaaaay, SEX. Some of us are even lucky enough to get a shiny diamond ring on this famously romantic holiday, clogging Facebook feeds with endless #RingSelfies. Not that we're complaining or anything, but when did this day become so female-centric? We mean, can't we show the boys a bit of love that doesn't require lacy lingerie? It turns out, we can!
To feed your bae's manly ego, and well, his stomach quite frankly, Say It With Beef creates beef jerky 'broquets' that are perfect for your meat-lovin' bae. "Flowers are lame. Say if with beef instead," is the motto behind this carnivorous business, which is boasted large and in charge on its website.
As of right now, there are only two types of bouquets that you can order for your main man — roses and daisies. Ok, let us rephrase that... Beef jerky roses and beef jerky daisies, so as to not upset any masculinity norms. But what about the vegetarians? The vegans? The PESCATARIANS?! Sadly, there are no kalequets, tofuquets, or tunaquets in the making yet, so your health-conscious boyfriend may just have to be ok with a hug and a kiss from you this Valentine's Day. Womp.
For those of you who are dating a steak-consuming, ravenous pork-chop-eating guy, you can head straight to Say It With Beef's website and order your big, strong man a masculine bouquet of jerky y'all. This jerky doesn't come cheap, though. A dozen of these seasoned, cured beef "flowers" will set you back $35 — a far cry from the pre-packaged meat sticks you can get at the gas station. But then again, the Jack's Links jerky isn't shaped in pretty florets like its more expensive counterpart.
So, will you be buying your man a broquet this year? TBH, we kind of want one ourselves...
